Student startups launched from The Hub, the entrepreneurial incubator at U of T Scarborough, have made over $1.1 million in combined revenues over the past two years.
“When I totaled (revenues) up and it went over a million, it was like, ‘Yeah this is cartwheel time,’” says Gray Graffam, director of The Hub. “It’s absolutely incredible to be part of the success story of these young companies.”
It has been four years since The Hub opened to provide workshops, training, mentorship and a workspace for students looking to start their businesses.
“This is where you discover your idea, and where you put the pieces together,” Graffam says. “This is where you understand how you’re going to tackle the business you want to create.”
